Arguably the most minimal booth in the entirety of designjunction was tucked away in an unassuming corner of the Cubitt House exhibition hall. A shelf, mounted on a wall at eye-level to emphasize its drawing-like simplicity; another beside it, and a darker variation on the floor below. Upon closer inspection: Diamond profiles of squared the crossbeams that form a simple, ladder-like frame; each of the twin-plank shelves punctuated by a subtle brass tile at the joints. Flush like an inlay, the hardware holds the pieces together like a keystone, fastened by hidden bolts below.

Designed by COMP, the “Parquet” system debuted during London Design Festival with the three prototypes: a wall-mounted shelf, a freestanding shelf, and a sideboard. The elegant interlocking structure may not explicitly resemble its namesake flooring pattern, but it certainly mark a strong showing from the London-based studio. Founders Cemal Okten and Martin Price have been collaborating on various projects for nearly a decade now, since they first met at Central Saint Martins, and we wish them luck with “Parquet.”
